Another morning coarse session, few good roach and a skimmer, all on feeder (was fishing just one rod) on maggots.
And a short timelapse video also
A short video from a not so great session coarse fishing on a small lake in Carrickmacross. Ended up with a dozen small roach and a bonus jack pike on a single maggot!
The Irish Government is moving closer to a huge sell-off of the public forests (logging rights), currently managed by Coillte (The Irish Forestry Board), to private investors. An area greater than 1 million acres, equivalent to two medium sized counties, will be lost forever. This will include some of our most valuable native woodlands, wild places and some of the last refuges of our native flora and fauna.
Interest has been expressed by Swiss finance company Helvetia Wealth – who own the International Forestry Fund (IFF) – chaired by Bertie Ahern, (ex-prime minister of Ireland) as well as The China Investment Corporation.
Bertie in action here:
Please sign this petition now to tell the Irish Government that Ireland’s Forests are not for sale.
These forests are the inheritance of the Irish children and managed wisely can help secure Ireland’s social, environmental and economic future. A strong show of support, asserting our rightful ownership of the public forests will make all the difference.
